To thank all our customers for helping us reach the incredible milestone of 15 successful years in business, we’ve performed a massive upgrade to all our hosting plans. Now, each customer gets even more features, regardless of their hosting plan. The enhancements listed below have been provided automatically and for free to all SiteGround users. Enjoy!
This is a picture of Coron Island in the Philippines, definitely one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. I truly love it, but their super slow Internet connectivity was the one thing that kept me from going back. It is painful to see how slowly sites load there, considering how much effort we put into optimizing our website technology both on the server and application level. But now, SiteGround has QUIC on our servers and Coron may make it into my travel plans again.
QUIC considerably increases site loading speed when you have poor connectivity. It’s the base for the next generation of Internet protocol coming: the HTTP/3. And, as usual, we are among the first hosting companies to provide this hot speed technology to all our customers.
Last week we passed the 2-million-domains hosted on our servers mark. Coincidentally, this came as an early Birthday surprise for our 15th anniversary this year that falls on March 22nd. We could not have made it this far without all of you, who put your trust in us and choose our services every day. Let’s make it at least 15 more years!
To commemorate the occasion, we prepared a short infographic with some of the milestones throughout the past 15 years that made us proud. Enjoy and share it using the #15YearsSiteGround hashtag to help us celebrate the day.Read More
Our commitment to helping WordPress grow has been consistently strong throughout the years. About 80% of our 2 million domains are associated with sites built on WordPress and we have been helping more and more people get introduced to the possibilities of WordPress.
Traditionally, through sponsorships, we help a huge number of WordCamps and meetups happen all around the world. But what we consider even more important, is our personal involvement.
